Geoprocessing Service Stops Working

I have two geoprocessing services that are giving me fits. One of them is an extract data tool and one creates a csv. If I restart them they run solid for about a day, but after that I get a few different results. 

  • The extract data tool will look like it runs fine, but then when you open the newly downloaded features it's an empty feature class. 
  • The CSV creating service runs fine until the part where a query is introduced, it then says it's an invalid query.

If I go into my ArcGIS Server Manager and hit the "Save and Restart" button, they are recycled and run fine for another day.

I've played with the recycling settings in the processes tab but nothing seems to make a difference. I have a bunch of web and feature services that run just fine. It only seems to be the geoprocessing services.

Below are the errors that show for some test geoprocessing services that I have set up.

It seems like something is stopping the connection files on my ArcGIS Server from being able to hit my SDE data. I do have scripts that kill connections every night, but the connection files should still work once they've run, I would think at least.

Did you ever find a solution to this?  We are having the same issue.

Are you extracting SDE data like the original poster?

Does it start failing at the same time every day and then after that you need to restart the service in order for the service to run properly again?

We created the service yesterday, it was working and then when we came in today, it was not working.  When I restarted it, it started working again, so we'll check it next week to see if it keeps happening.

The service is running a network trace on data in SDE, but not extracting any data.  We have a script that disconnects all connections at 6am daily and are wondering if it is related to that.

Hi Jessica,

We also disconnect users each night, so that is possible. Our work around was simply to run a restart python script each morning. This has resolved the issue for us.

Oh awesome, thank you so much. That’s what we were thinking of doing, so I’m happy to hear that works for you!

Hi Levi and Jessica - we have a very issue also using the data extract tool as a go service. We have times when the service fails and also have nightly scripts. 

When you say you use a python script to restart - is this because the service is actually stopped each morning? Our service is still running but failing. I’m wondering if you are using python to just restart the service and that resolves the issue for you guys?

thanks for any info!

Hi Caroline,

The service was never stopped, it was constantly running. It would just not run properly after awhile and we would have to go into arcgis server manager and restart the service. It sounds like you are having the same issue, and restarting the service should fix the issue. To test you can go into your ArcGIS Server manager, click on the service that is failing and click the "Save & Restart" button.

Thank you so much for your kind response! I will try just doing a restart next time it fails and see if it sorts it!

Thank you again!

Hello.  Did you manage to solve this without having to restart the service every time?

I have a similar problem, but not with Data Extraction, it's a service that we published from a python script.  It works fine in ArcMap, we published it and it works fine at firts, but late in the day it gives an error related to the geodatabase connection.  If I restart the service it works fine again.  

I cannot restart every time because the services is not used just once or twice a day, the idea is to run it several times a day by different users.

Thanks!
